to add, drop me an email.



=========================
  200: Introduction       \
===============================================================================

Welcome to my first Retro FAQ. This FAQ should cover both Classic and normal 
version of Sub. Many including myself still play old skool games especially 
UMK as its one of the best MK games. Sure there are new 3D versions but to be 
honest nothing bets the old 2D style. Any way if you have anything to add drop 
me an email found At the top of this FAQ.



=========================
  300: The Basics         \

The first thing you need to know is that you cant play as Classic Sub-Zero 
unless you use one of the two methods.

before it, enter the following cheat code:  C, R, A, Z, Y, C, Y, R, A, X. 
If done correctly you will hear laughing. Press up at the main menu and you 
will be taken to a secret options where you have the ability to unlock Classic 
Sub-Zero along with other characters and stuff. 


The long method: 

Start a normal game against the computer and lose. Let the counter reach 
zero and it will be game over. You will immediately be taken to an "Enter 
an Ultimate Kombat Kode" screen. Here press HP seven times, BLK six times, LP
five times, R two times. You should get a massage "From this point on Classic 
Sub-Zero is at your control.

+ Press two buttons at once.



=========================
  400: Sub-Zero           \
===============================================================================

The ninja returns unmasked. He was betrayed by his own clan, the Lin Kuei, 
he broke sacred codes of honor by leaving his clan and is marked for death. 
But unlike the ninja of old, his pursuers comes as machines. He must not only 
defend himself against the Outworld menace, but he must also elude his soulless
assassins.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 410: Moves ---------------------------------------------------------------'

Sub-Zero has useful attacks and special moves, lets go trough them:

Freeze                D, F, LP

Ice Clone             D, B, LP

Ice Shower            D, F, HP

Near Ice Shower       D, F, B, HP

Slide                 B+LP+BK+LK


Here are the explanations and strategies on each move: 

Freeze   D, F, LP 

Sube-Zeroís special, best used when near as it gives the element of surprise 
or far away when he is about to use his special; ex scorpions spear.  Another 
good timing is when your opponent is jumping as it makes him open when his 
bout to land. Keep mixing the timings and destines to keep your stratagem 
fresh.

Another trick is to give your opponent jumping distains and wait for him to 
make the jump toward you. As soon as he does, run toward him without jumping 
so you end up behind him while he still about to land, a perfect opportunity 
right there. 


Ice Clone   D, B, LP

Ice clone can be very useful when used right.  Best used when someone jumps 
at you, immediately ice clone and heís trapped. Another good practice is when 
your opponent is running toward you. Wait about 2 steps and ice clone; your 
opponent most likely wonít have a time to react.   


Ice Shower (Far)  D, F, HP

Ice shower is a new move that first appeared in MK 3. Kind of hard to benefit 
from but can be useful when your opponent is in the air jumping backwards. 
Never attempt it when near. Another scenario is when youíre about to get hit 
but opponentís special. 


Ice Shower (Near)  D, F, B, HP

Use it when an opponent is running toward you as he will likely jump up 
thinking you will use a normal freeze. 


Slide   B+LP+BK+LK

The Slide attack doesn't do much damage but it can be used as a surprised 
attack.  A good timing is when someone jumps away as you wonít have the 
time to run or use anything other than a quick slide. Donít use it much as 
it will leave you open to combos should it get blocked. 

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 420: Combos --------------------------------------------------------------'
 
5 Hit Combo         HP, HP, LP, LK, HK, B+HK

3 Hit Kick Combo    HK, HK, B+HK

Jump Combo          Jump punch, HP, HP, HK
Jump Combo 2        Jump Kick, B+LK
Jump Combo 3        Jump punch, HP, HP, LP, B+HK
Jump Combo 4        Jump punch, HP, HP, LP, LK, HK, B+HK

Jump Slide Combo    Jump kicking your opponent, slide

Strategies on using each combo: 

The first two combos are the most damageable and are very useful. The best way 
of preforming them is to run straight at your opponent and combo him. Remember 
to time the combo right and finish it even if your opponent is blocking because
 if you stop he will have the perfect chance to combo you back. You can also 
use any combo after you freeze youír opponent. 

Another good way to use it is after the run trick. Wait for him to jump at 
you; as soon as he dose run but instead of freezing him, run back and combo 
him as soon as he lands. You can also combo him when he attempts to jump 
backwards in close-ups. 

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 430: Fatalities ----------------------------------------------------------'

Fatalities are the hart of Mortal Kombat. After defeating your opponent for 
two rounds, you will have a chance to finish off your opponent. She/he will 
stay dizzied for a short while; this is the time to carefully preform the 
finishing move.

In order for your move to work, you will have to be in a certain position as 
per each finishing move. Explanations below:


Close        Stand close to your opponent, don't leave any space in between. 

Sweep        About 4-6 steps away from your opponent. 

Far          Stand far away from your opponent. 

Mercy        To perform it you will need lose one round. at the finish him 
             scene hold R, D, D, let go of R. This will Enable your opponent 
             to fight again with one hit left on his/her health.

Animality:   Hold BLK, F, U, U   (Close)  Sub-Zero turns into a bear and eat 
                                          his opponent (Requires mercy).

his third Lin Kuei Assassin - the elusive Smoke. Before automation Smoke and 
Sub-Zero were allies. Sub-Zero helps Smoke recall his past and gains him as 
an ally once again. 

Sub-Zero defeats his cyborg assassins with the help of Smoke and finds it 
takes all his own inner strengths to defeat Kahn and his Outworld Minions. 
The former ninja once again disappears into the shadows. His legacy known 
only by a select few.



=========================
  500: Classic Sub-Zero   \
===============================================================================

Thought to have been vanquished in the Shaolin Tournament, Sub-Zero 
mysteriously returns. It's believed this secretive member of the Lin 
Kuei, a legendary clan of Chinese "ninjas", has returned to again 
attempt an assassination of Shang Tsung. To do so, he must fight his 
way through Shao Kahn's tournament.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 510: Moves ---------------------------------------------------------------'

The Classic MK Sub-Zero returns with  a little power up. Basically his 
the same as you last seen him with new finishing moves and combos. Here 
are all the moves:

Freeze          D, F, LP

Ground Freeze   D, B, LK

Slide           B+LP+BK+LK


The strategies are the same as the normal Sub-Zero, except the Ground freeze. 
Use this move when opponent is jumping at you. Step back and throw the ice, 
this will leave your opponent unstable for a short time giving you some good 
hits. In rare cases it can also be useful when you are near the opponent but 
that's too risky and can put you in dangerous situation because your opponent 
can combo you before your ice hits the ground.

_______________________________________________________________________________
'-- 520: Combos ---------------------------------------------------------------

5 Hit Combo        HP, HP, LK, B+HK, F+LK

Jump Combo         Jump Punch HP, HP, LK, B+HK, F+LK
